The ruffle trend has carried over from summer to winter this year, and we are big fans! This interpretation on sweaters is feminine and romantic.

If you’re a curvy petite, try ruffle sleeves to bring volume to your petite frame and balance out those curves.

It’s such a statement piece that all eyes will be on you when you walk into a room.

You can dress it up by adding a tulle skirt, or dress it down with a pair of jeans.

Pearls have found a new home on winter sweaters.

Though pearls are normally used for jewelry, petite sweaters embellished with pearls are a strong, elegant statement piece.

Just like the ruffle style, they are chic and romantic.

Care tip: You must take special care of these sweaters. Due to the pearl embellishment, you may need to hand wash or send them out for dry cleaning.

The best thing about an off the shoulder sweater is you can wear it two different ways: fully off both shoulders or slouched off one shoulder.

To create a layered, relaxed look, throw your sweater over a cami.

Pro styling tip: By half tucking the sweater in the front like Rachel, you instantly elevate your look. For curvy petites, this slick move also elongates your legs to make you look taller.
